A lifelong passion for books and a very large yellow marmalade cat named Percy were the inspirations for this venture. We have a growing stock of rare, used, and out-of-print books in all genres available for purchase, and will be adding inventory to the site regularly.

Not on the site but available are many vintage paperbacks, once-read current paperback fiction, and miscellaneous ephemera. We welcome your want lists in all categories or your inquiry about a specific title.
